At stake is a series of steps suggested to form part of Gösgen's first global safety assessment since it began operating in 1984. The safety assessment steps were finalised in April.

No further details are available because the case is now subject to legal proceedings.
A spokesperson for Switzerland's nuclear safety agency told ENDS Daily that the measures it had requested were based on assessments made on similar plants in Germany.
